's right. the gop wants you to believe president obama's health care law is the real war on women. oh, the irony. especially since just last week we learned that gop men are being tutored on how to talk to women. and according to a staff at one of those meetings, quote, some of these guys have a lot to learn. where would they possibly get that idea? >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> the incidents of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low. >> well, maybe they can get some pointers on how to talk to women from the real boss of the party. listen to what he said today. >> -- yourself staring looking at, casually glancing at a woman. but you know that it's now socially taboo. you shouldn't be doing it. and you think everybody is noticing you doing it and condemning you in their minds. you walk up to the woman and say, would you please ask your breasts to stop staring at my eyes. try that. might help. you don't know un
that many democrats face right now, being so closely associated with some of the mistakes of obama care. but in reality, i think that a.b. has a really good point, which is that he is actually going to be somebody who helps drive the wedge between president obama and hillary clinton but i think that van has a good point in the sense that there's really not a whole lot that can be done to really separate the two, and it could become a very -- a big problem if hillary looks like she's trying to run away from obama in a democratic primary. >> everyone is right but i'm not going to stop that here. i want to play a clip of something rush limbaugh has said which is getting a lot of attention, talking about pope francis, and pope francis' comments about capitalism. let's listen. >> somebody has either written this for him or gotten to him. this is just pure marxism coming out of the mouth of the pope. >> you know, rush limbaugh is not running for office but there are a lot of republican catholics who one day could be, kevin. chris christie, paul ryan, among others. do you expect any of them to

, thank you for joining us, "all in" with chris hayes starts right now. >>> good evening from new york, i'm chris hayes, the white house today got the best news it has had in two months about obama care. we will bring that news to you in a moment as well as the president's latest push to get young people to enroll. but it has always been the case, the political fate of obama care would rest ultimately on its performance, what it did for people's lives and not on the lies and slander directed at it from the right. and while the smears deployed against it get shorter and shorter we have the latest example. did you hear about the guy whose baby was denied coverage under obama care? >> those family plan quotes included myself, my wife, our 7, 5, and 7-year-old, and 18 month-old was left off. the response was no, they don't allow family plans under the age of 8. >> this guy tried to sign his family up for insurance on the new york state exchange and they refused to enroll his 18 month-old baby? obama care is anti-toddler? the story, as you might imagine, got a lot of pickup in the right wing m
are facing right now in the cost of obama care, the cost of regulation. i think we need stability in the market. we certainly need to help these people. i thought there were some good things like states that have taken the initiative to raise wages, which, of course, is an option that every state would have. cities can do it as well, if the cost of living could make a difference there. also, andrea, i think that brian's idea earlier that you look at having a wage for students to have jobs and learn how to work in the workplace, but then people working to support a family would have maybe a different criteria. i think there are a lot of ways some of these issues could be addressed. congress is facing a lot of issues right now for our country. >> and they are not working very hard. we had four days where both the house and senate are in until the end of the year. ed rendell, i know governors think they have the answer. you were a former governor. congress is unpopular for a reason. there's a reason we know longer have kay bailey hutchison, olympia snowe and others left in frustratio
, that op-ed he wrote is an early shot. another piece you have up there this morning, president obama juggling legislative issues right now. republicans, though, going back after health care as we head into 2014. that's really where the focus is going to be for his opponents, isn't it? >> sure s. willie the white house got more excited reaction from liberals, the left democrats and maybe they expected earlier this week when they said on "morning joe" that every day this month up until the deadline that the president was going to be focusing on health care. people got very excited about it. the supporters loved it. but the president has a lot else on his plate. this is a multi-tasking month today. the president is talking about income in equality at 11:15. he will be talking about immigration he has foreign policy and heads up to hawaii at the end of the month. the president has a ton going on t. supporters think there is good news, maybe the website is steadying now want more of the president every day. >> obviously, the republicans will not let up despite they may be setting up polit
. the cold air ships over and sets up shop up and down the coast. right now, let's hear from president obama. 1964, nelsonal at statementosed his saying, "i have fought against white domination and i have fought against black domination. i cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. it is an ideal which i hope to live for and to achieve. be, it is an ideal for which i am prepared to die." nelson mandela lived for that ideal and made it real. he achieved more than could be expected of any man. today he has gone home. we have lost one of the most influential, courageous, and profoundly good human beings that any of us will ever share time with on this earth. heat a longer belongs to us. he belongs to the ages. andugh his fierce dignity unbending will to sacrifice his own freedom for the freedom of others, mandela transformed south africa and moved all of us. his journey from a prisoner to a embodied the promise that human beings and countries can change for the better. his commitment to transfer power and reco

. what could cause the price >>> president obama back at the white house right now after a brand-new interview at a local university. >> chris matthews, host of "hardball" is here to talk about his exclusive interview. >> you played hardball with the president down from our station. we imagine you talked about health care. >> i did. i got the question people are really asking. the poll numbers are down everywhere. it's a sense the government isn't being tightly controlled. people aren't getting follow through. getting it executed was a problem. i asked what the management system is. i asked him about, you know, this dysfunction in washington, it's the number one concern right now. politicians can't do their job and compromise. we are under strict -- in terms of his words. he was wonderful, when i heard the speech, it seemed parallel to what pope francis is saying with economic justice, especially the poor people. he was really, i'm sure he never said this before. he started talking about what it meant to him and what he's in politics for and why. later on, he gave a portrait of p
at this hour, on the record right now, president obama is wrapping up remarks about israel during a time of tension over iran. these are some live pictures. the president literally just wrapping up. more from the white house. >>> and the budget breakthrough, a rare bipartisan plan is in the works right now. i'll ask a gop congresswoman if they'll make deadline day. >>> there will be a lot of friendships made and other kids will have a friend to play with. >> and the buddy bench. one second-grader's idea to solve loneliness is today's big idea. a lot to get to. >>> we start this hour with the release of 85-year-old american veteran merrill newman. newman arrived at san francisco international airport about two hours ago to applause. he was holding his wife's hand. the north korean government released newman late last night. they'd been holding him in the country since october. as you might imagine, newman says he is thrilled to be home. >> it's been a great homecoming. and i'm tired but ready to be with my family now. thank you all for the support we got and very much appreciate it. >> no
for you right here on "mad money." i'm jim cramer and i'll see you tomorrow. >>> it's another day of bad surprises from obama care. and this may be the topper. some people with pre-existing conditions, especially cancer patients, may be worse off because of the new law. >>> and sticker shock. deductibles are skyrocketing and that means huge out-of-pocket posts. and then get this -- 70% of doctors in california won't play in obama care. >>> also tonight, very senior, highly placed republican house source in washington, d.c. tells me the budget deal is close but the sequester will not survive intact and there will be a revenue package. >>> and finally, the fight for economic freedom gets even more intense overseas. look at this statue of linen toppled. this fight is not going away. all those stories and much more coming up on "the kudlow report" beginning right now. >>> i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." first up tonight, a report that a majority of california doctors, as many as 70%, are staying off the state's obama care exchange because they can't afford to participate. that
obama care, which i'm sure that you cover a lot on your show, it causes the american people to not be comfortable with the leadership that we have right now. >> there's also a growing sense of isolation that we're seeing from this poll and when you were mentioning obama care and other domestic issues do you think the problems of a tough economy here at home is one reason why americans are fed up with the lack of real progress about solving our domestic challenges? is that why people are turning away from supporting major foreign policy move right now? simple i think that's part of it. i think the bigger thing is the disappointment and the deception on the part of this president as well as the administration and the democrat leaders, quite frankly, in washington, d.c. and particularly in one of the studies that was a harvard institute of politics study, also, that showed that even millenials have done a 180-degree flip-flop. a majority of millenials voted for president obama and now a majority of millenials do not like obama care and what's also scary is that they believe he

watching us right now, we do expect president obama to travel to south africa for the memorial service for nelson mandela, hearing that from a source familiar with that kind of planning, and in just the last several minutes, don't really have anything more on that, about you as you heard the president saying in his brief remarks just a few moments ago, obviously nelson mandela is one of his heroes, somebody who touched president obama's life when he was a young man in occidental college many years ago, the first political act as a young man was to go to an anti-apartheid rally. that stayed with president obama all through his life. nelson mandela was sort of always with president obama, and as you heard in the white house briefing room, he said nelson mandela is no longer with us, he is with the ages. president obama tried to visit nelson mandela over the summer when the president was traveling across africa. he was not able to do that, because nelson mandela was sick, but he was able to visit with the civil rights and anti-apartheid icon back in 2005 when barack obama was a member of
's not a news flash. to show no historical memory, elevate for partisan purposes the obama administration of the worst lying in presidential history is ignorant, it's offensive talking down to the american people. second thing is this, for republicans right now, if they're trying to win a republican primary, they're rewarded for being responsible. you throw red meat. saying things like they are taking lying to a whole new level or saying an iran deal is distracting from obama care. what's sad is he thinks they're politically important to protect his right flank in a primary. >> ironically, they'll hurt him in the primary. >> i don't you think? >> the more you whip up the anger on the fringe of that party the more it's going to work against cornyn. he's seen as a moderate, somebody who doesn't embrace the tea party values to their satisfaction. the more he makes that the level of play, the more it will hurt him. >> he's trying to inoculate himself, see, i can be just as inflammatory as you, as unhinged as you, i am one of you. at that point -- >> republicans have been doing this for all of
at it as almost a proxy for what had happened in america during the civil rights movement and i think it awakened and it was a revelation for many, many americans. >> i'm sure president obama and i'm sure you'll agree was deeply disappointed when he was in south africa earlier this year, with his family, he was not able to go and meet president mandela, because he was so gravely ill. i'm sure he would have loved to have done that, but he obviously couldn't. he'll head to south africa in the coming days for the funeral, this will be an important event not only for president obama but for the united states. >> yes, and again, wolf, mandela has not been himself for a number of years. i think it was understandable he wasn't able to meet with the president. mandela say man of such great pride. the last few years when his memory was failing him, he felt awkward, seeing people, but i do think it's a great opportunity for president obama, president obama has had an important and deep focus on africa, the young african leaders initiative that he started as something that he cares a great deal about, so i
's death, president obama ordered flags to be flown at half staff. one citizen says no, that is not right. why not? it seems like a gesture of respect. why isn't he lowering the flag? >> pickens county sheriff rick clark doesn't think it has place in south carolina in his county. he says this type of honor should be reserved for americans. nelson mandela is not an her can. he laid out his argument to our local affiliate, whns. take a listen. >> so a sign of respect for what nelson mandela has done. i have no problem with lowering in south africa for their country. but in our country, it is for our people who have sacrificed for our country. >> rick clark says it is the right thing to do at u.s. embassy in south africa but no place here at home. it had been quite easy to keep the flag at half staff. they had a deputy die earlier this week. they already had the flag half staff. they were also honoring pearl harbor. so it would have been easy for them to keep it up. >> he has some support. people say he is doing the right thing. what is the feedback? >> it is overwhelming in support of rick
. >> the puzzle is together. thank you. >> all right. so we are waiting for comments from president obama on the sxae economy and why he believes the situation is a threat to the american dream. >> last hour i gave you my take on dennis lasky being released from prison. he was over the top and very hard to like. if you were in government, he would've would have been a hero, that is one what one of our viewers said. and we have a tweet. charles says he was the boy for corporate greed and he set the tone against corporate america. >> all the different problems out there, the punishment was egregious, but it was just the wrong place at the wrong time. charles, thank you for joining us. bill: coming up next, cutting tensions in detroit. the next question becomes what happens to those city retirees who have been clinging to those benefits. and the president is pushing this hour for higher minimum wage and charlie rangel is here to talk to us about that. >> remarks from the president and what he calls the defining issue of our time. just moments from now, his speeches would focus on income and
connection.gov crashed right after it launched. maryland, one of the first states to jump right on the obama care bandwagon. the rollout sputed along over the past nine weeks. they've only enrolled about 3,000 residents in the whole state of marry land. a very, very blue state. >> roughly 700 people have been able to enroll over the last week or so. they are saying -- >> maybe she'll get her job back. >> an improvement. right. maybe it will be a paid vacation kind of things. it doesn't sound like it. there have been calls for people like kathleen sebelius to lose her job. the president has yet to hold anything accountable at the federal level. we spoke with governor mike huckabee and he says the president is out of the loop and he needs to learn how to manage. >> i think people need to realize as bad as the website is, and it's clearly been a train wreck, it's nothing compared to what happens when people finally get into obama care and now we're learning that, for example, in states like washington state, nine times more people signed up for medicaid than to pay for insurance. good managers
works, what's popular from obama care and then you can put a different system around that. >> right. >> wait. >> the point is, guys, the point is we don't think this is working. and we should have an alternative to obama care that works. >> you should have an alternative that works and that want meets its goals. >> there's a lot of happy talk about well pre-existing conditions and pick the goodies off the shelf and leave the stuff that will make lives of people at the bottom of the ladder better. can i say two things. one getting back to the private-sector. if this was done in the private-sector people who have been fired. that's another important difference the way this is handled and the private-sector. secondly the next big test of obama care is not this website. it will get fixed. the next test is 7 million people signed up by the end of march. that's what we should be watching. >> it's not going to be happening. >> it's very hard. >> that's your way of saying it won't happen. >> i don't want to -- >> how do people get access to health care. it's not just republicans who didn't
there had in 2004. did not go so well against barack obama. if this rule is right, it does not bode whole for scott brown in new hampshire in 2014 coming off of 2012, a loss in massachusetts. that's our fifth rule. what should we know today? we are going to ask our panelist right after this. my asthma's under control. i get out a lot... except when it's too cold. like the last three weekends. asthma doesn't affect my job... you missed the meeting again last week! it doesn't affect my family. your coughing woke me up again. i wish you'd take me to the park. i don't use my rescue inhaler a lot... depends on what you mean by a lot. coping with asthma isn't controlling it. test your level of control at asthma.com, then talk to your doctor. there may be more you could do for your asthma. >>> all right. it's time to find out what we think our guests should know for the week ahead. ana marie, we'll start with you. >> i'm going to start with "blackfish," it's a documentary about seaworld and the conditions the animals are kept in there. a lot of people have probably seen it. it actually gave cnn
? >> that's right. world's most famous tech companies are pushing president obama and members of congress saying they strongly believe current laws and practices about surveillance need to be changed. a.o.l., apple, facebook, google, linkedin, microsoft, twiter and yahoo created the coalition. they said we understand that government has a duty to protect the citizens but this summer's revelations highlighted the urgent need to reform government surveillance practices worldwide. letter goes on to read, the balance in many countries have tipped too far in favor of the state and away from the rights of the individual, rights that are in our constitution that undernines the freedom we all cherish. c.e.o. including twitter, that of yahoo, facebook and google c.e.o. put fourth five clear goals they want to accomplish on the website calling on governments to limit surveillance to specific users, not to collect data in bulk and ask that companies have the right to publicish what the government demands from them, what they ask for and how often. this call for change comes at the same time as repor
